The recent actions of the WWE appear to indicate that The King of Kings has already identified Pat McAfee as Kevin Patrick’s potential replacement. The Chief Content Officer recently took to Twitter as he reacted to Pat McAfee’s congratulatory tweet on WWE and Netflix’s amazing partnership. In a reaction, Triple H mockingly replied to the former football punter by claiming that he was also a member of the promotion and that he could not leave now. “You’re a part of this, @PatMcAfeeShow You can’t get away now lol,” he wrote.

Pat McAfee previously worked with the WWE as a color commentator on the blue brand alongside Michael Cole. During his stint with the WWE, the 36-year-old also made several appearances as a guest commentator for WWE’s NXT TakeOver events in 2018 before signing a contract with the promotion in February 2019. He was also made a part of a storyline back in 2020, as he feuded with Adam Cole and made his WWE NXT in-ring debut at TakeOver XXX; however, he lost the match. But what about Kevin Patrick? How big of a part was he of the WWE?
